    Louise, Linda, Teresa, and Carol,
    We are so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Miss Martha was a sweet, kind lady. But what I will remember most is her sense of humor. Always smiling, always laughing, just a joy to be around. Out thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.
